Complice, a shimmering natural soft peach, is shown at left above. Éclairé, gold and gleaming, is shown at right above. The other shades are Furtif, pale grey (gorgeous); Infini, a gorgeous shimmering silver; Indescret, midnight blue; and Noir, matte black. I think I'm going back for Infini. It was so beautiful, but I was trying - once again - to be budget-minded so I came home without it. That silver has been haunting me, though.
A Chanel classic, this ultra-fine powder eyeshadow is luxurious in feel, foolproof in its application (unlike some shimmering shadows), and fabulous in its range of matte, satin, and shimmer finishes. The versatile formula can be applied dry for subtle shading or dampened for more intense color, and the complementary shades can be blended with one another to lighten or deepen tone. I think most of you know how to use eye shadow, but I included this factoid from Chanel.
Naturally, I selected two shimmering shades. My eyes are drawn to shimmer, and I love the look on my face. I think my eyes are my best feature, so I like to draw attention to them.
As I keep repeating, Chanel's Fall 2012 Collection is arriving at more and more stores with each passing day. Call your favorite Chanel counter before you go - just to make sure they have the collection. If you need help, I've provided a Neiman Marcus contact in the comments of several of my features on this collection. If you are in or near New York, you can find the collection at Bergdorf Goodman. I think they received it first.
